CERN finds FTL neutrinos?
read the paper for yourself ..
The results of the study indicate for CNGS muon neutrinos with an
average energy of 17 GeV an early neutrino arrival time with respect
to the one computed by assuming the speed of light in vacuum:
δt = (60.7 ± 6.9 (stat.) ± 7.4 (sys.)) ns.
The corresponding relative difference of the muon neutrino velocity
and the speed of light is:
(v-c)/c = δt /(TOF’c – δt) = (2.48 ± 0.28 (stat.) ± 0.30 (sys.)) ×10-5.
*with an overall significance of 6.0 σ.*
